Blessing the Body of the World
with Sean Donahue
Online, July 4 – August 8
“Go to the mountains and the forest; go naked in the Summer that you may regain the old joy. Love gladly and freely under the stars. But you say your body is not beautiful? Here is a secret: the body is molded by the mind. If you have embraced fear, repression, hate — then you may find your body repulsive. But go free, love joyously and without restraint. Run naked then watch the cheeks flush, the breasts well and the supple contours develop from the flowing rhythms of life.”
The ways we relate to our bodies and the ways we relate to the earth are deeply intertwined. When we are deeply present in our bodies and our senses, we are present to the living world around us.
Join me for an exploration of the magic, politics, and biology of embodied connection with the earth. Each week you receive a recorded lecture/lesson and a set of questions and practices to work with. You will also be invited to a private facebook group where you can discuss your experiences with other participants – though this is strictly optional.
Week 1 – Cosmology: Situating Our Bodies in the Universe
Week 2 – Coming to Our Senses
Week 3 – “All acts of love and pleasure are my rituals”
Week 4 – Eros and Revolution
It is my intention to make this class body-positive and welcoming and affirming to people of all genders and sexualities.
